BLUEBERRY - BRIGHTWELL
Often called Rabbiteyes this is one of the hardiest of all the blueberries. Berries often form like grapes in thick clusters. This variety is often in the shops due to it's larger size and bigger harvest. It ripens in the middle or end of the blueberry harvesting season. It is self fertile but you can increase it's yield by planting it near other varieties. This variety is very well suited for the home orchard.
